Next month's conjunction will be even better because the crescent Moon will be even closer to Venus, only a fraction of a degree away, and Venus will be a crescent, too! Like the Moon, Venus has phases, and during next month's conjunction the second planet will be only 23% illuminated. Wide-field telescopic images will reveal two crescents side by side. ~ Spaceweather.com
As the sun set I took a video of Venus and the Moon approaching the arches of the Verrazzano Bridge.
Also from Spaceweather - Sunspot activity is increasing. Yesterday, sunspot AR2895 didn't exist. Now it's bigger than Earth. A movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory shows sunspot genesis in action.
Some of you may remember Solar Max years ago when we followed CME's and people wondered if one was going to take the planet out. Nope. It's always been about Plate Tectonics unless a CME sets things off.
